Brockets or brocket deer are the species of deer in the genus Mazama. They are medium to small in size, and are found in the Yucatán Peninsula, Central and South America, and the island of Trinidad. Most species are primarily found in forests. They are superficially similar to the African duikers and the Asian muntjacs, but unrelated. There are about ten species of brocket deer. The genus name Mazama is derived from Nahuatl mazame, the plural of mazatl "deer"Depending on species, the brocket deer are small to medium­sized deer with stout bodies and large ears. The head­and­body length is 60–144 centimetres (24–57 in), the shoulder height is 35–80 centimetres (14–31 in) and they typically weigh 8–48 kilograms (18–106 lb), though exceptionally large M. americana have weighed as much as 65 kilograms (143 lb). When present, the antlers are small, simple spikes.The pelage varies from reddish, to brown to gray.
